Chapter News

IMPORTANT: Woking Leisure Centre is operating under very strict and controlled measures to ensure the safety of its users whilst the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues. However, we are unable to resume our concert schedule at the moment, but we are regularly reviewing the situation. Therefore, please be aware of the following:

Woking Concert on 19th September with Donald MacKenzie has been cancelled. 

UK Young Theatre Organist of the Year, which was due to take place on 12th July, was postponed until 2021.

AGM was due to take place on Wednesday 22nd April.  This was postponed until a later date, or will possibly be held virtually using Zoom, the date of which will be notified. 

Paul Kirner's Music Palace trip to Porth, which was due to take place on Saturday 4th April, was postponed.  We hope to reschedule this once the emergency situation is past.

Obviously, further cancellations may need to be made, and this website will be updated when new information becomes available.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact our chapter trustees, who's details may be found HERE.  

Change in publication frequency of Chapter newsletter & Newsletter Articles

We have changed the publication frequency for our excellent Chapter newsletter, which is edited and produced by Peter Collett.

With effect from this year, 2020, it will be published quarterly and not bi-monthly.  We will use the calendar quarters, thus January to March, April to June, July to September and October to December.

For those with Full National Membership, the frequency of the glossy magazine, which is published in America, remains unchanged. 

We always welcome contributions to our Chapter Newsletter.  If you can help in any way, either with articles or photographs, please contact the editor, Peter Collett, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Help needed

We need help and support in the following ways:

  • Chapter trustees.  You would need to be registered as a trustee of the charity, be able to support the organisation and attend comittee meetings.
  • Woking concert set up and take down.  We would particularly welcome local people who can regularly help with this as none of the committee live in Surrey, let alone Woking!
  • Woking concert raffle.  Organise obtaining good quality prizes, sell tickets at the concerts, help with the draw and cash up at the end of the evening.

If you think you can help or wish to learn more then please contact one of the ATOS trustees who's details you can find here.
